By: Alisha Headley
Solely be on guard and diligently watch yourselves so that you simply don’t overlook the issues your eyes have seen and in order that they don’t slip out of your thoughts so long as you reside. Train them to your youngsters and your grandchildren. – Deuteronomy 4:9

You end up in a lot awe of Him, His Phrase, and His faithfulness, that you simply vow to by no means cease praising Him. This season brings reward within the morning, the night and all through your day.
However as every day passes from the divine marked second, you overlook that second of His miraculous handiwork in your life.
